Early Learning - Curated by Mhari McMullan and Katy West

Exhibition

Early Learning explores the legacies of the Kindergarten educational method through unique commissions from a group of artists, designers and their young children.

Each of the commissioned artists’ practices reflect processes relating to Friedrich Fröbel’s 20 ‘gifts and occupations’ – play materials for young children ranging from building blocks to modelling clay, designed for the original Kindergarten. In exploring these processes with their own children, the artists present new possibilities and variations of the original system. More information available at early-learning.org

Supported by Glasgow International, the Hope Scott Trust, Glasgow Life and the Goethe Institute.
